me as odd. you get talking points on november 16. patreaus told congress the c.i.a. didn't change the talking points. white house and state said they didn't do it. white house told the news changes were made because they pt didn't want al qaeda tipped off and the director of national intelligence said they made the changes because the al qaeda links were too tenuous. then they said the f.b.i. did it and the morrell said i did say f.b.i. i didn't mean f.b.i. i meant c.i.a. and then panetta said he believed at the time it was a preplanned terrorist atafnlg you can see for people it looks like there's a great deal of confusion there, yes? >> there's always confusion when you have a tragedy of that sort and americans are killed. the bigger, tragedy, though, jon, is we spent all of these months trying to figure out origin of talking points which were cleared at the highest levels of the intelligence community. in my opinion, not enough time doing the service we owe to our fallen colleagues. >> jon: this gets to my point though. this gets to my point.

's regime? my next guest knows about this. he's the former cia operative that spent the career turning iranians into spies for the u.s.. joining me now from the foundation of defense of democracy, thanks so much for coming on the show. let me ask you, do you think we've really put a choke on their cash here with this move? >> i think we diminished the ability to turn gold into hard currency or avoid spending hard currency through using gold in a barter system. i don't think it's going to be sufficient to make the iranian regime cry "uncle," i think that's unlikely. melissa: why? what else are they depending on? >> well, they are still selling a lot of oil, and the sanctions that came into play on february 6th are going to make their lives more difficult, lock up currency in places like turkey and korea and japan and india, and they are going to be restricted op what they can use that locked up currency. we're talking billions of dollars her, but the iranians still, you know, have the ability -- they have lots of oil, so even though it's probably been cut by nearly 50% from 18 months ag
by the operational mentality in the cia after being in the building no more than a month. this was an extremely weak national security team. obama also, i think, was rolled by the military, that's how you got to serge of forces. i think he realized he was had by the military, and i think that's important. one of the reasons i'm a little more optimistic about this second term is i think this is a wiser man in terms of foreign policy, and if you look at the fact that he has ended in the war in iraq, he has meandering towards ending the war in afghanistan, he's allowing the pentagon, and you've got to remember when you look at the pentagon, you're looking at an institution that has the fine motor skills of a dinosaur. it takes the pentagon a long time to put together a timetable such as for withdraw. all obama has to do, and i know it's not this simple, but i would look at the experience, came in in 1995, gave the speech in 1996, announcing the bleeding wound, he had nazis tell schulz we were getting out and the military had a year to turn it around, and they wouldn't be able to. 88, they announced the

in the confirmation hearing of the proposed cia directer, the nominee, john brennan. however, privacy issues and military applications of uas beyond the scope of this hearing. i use the term "unmanned aircraft systems" or usa instead of uas or drones because it is a more complete term. uas are complex systems made up of not just aircraft, but as well as supporting ground, air, and communications infrastructure. uas comes in a variety of shapes and sizes and carries out a wide range of missions. aviation has come a long way in a relatively short period of time thanks to american innovation and i think newty. the list of pioneers in aviation and aerospace is very long. you may not know the details of the achievement, but i'm shore you know names like cesna, james mcdonald and donald douglas, howard hughes, william boeing, charles limbburg, kelly johnson just to name a few. the next steps in modern aviation began with two american brothers in 190 # -- 1903. they will likely transform civilian and commercial sectors. the group in the industry and market firm predicts that they spend over $49 bil
come to be a central issue in a confirmation hearing of the proposed cia director, nominee john brandon. however sir, privacy issues beyond the scope of this hearing. i use the term unmanned aircraft systems or uas considered uav or drone. as the name suggests, they are complex systems made up of not only aircraft, the supporting communications infrastructure. uas comes in a variety of shapes and sizes and can carry a wide range of missions. aviation has come a long way at a relatively short period of time thanks to american innovation and ingenuity. the list of american aviation and aerospace is very long. you may not know the details of their achievements, but i'm sure you recognize names such as clyde cessna, james snape donnell and donald douglas. howard hughes, william lane, charles lindbergh, kelley johnson just to name a few. unmanned aircraft or the next step in the evolution of modern aviation which began with two american brothers in 1803. just as a revolution in military affairs, they will also very likely transformed civilian and commercial sectors. the group in aerospace an
hearings over c.i.a. nominee john brennan. a war criminal? really? >> i think we have to acknowledge that there are the killing of thousands of people, hundreds of them children that this drone policy is terrorizing entire populations. i was recently in pakistan and saw what it's like for people to be living under drones 24 hours a day and the fear that instills in people and that this has become the best recruiting tool for extremist organizations and is making us less safe here at home. so i think it's important to speak out and call for a change in the policy. >> slow down. wait a second. how is it making us less safe at home to kill people who want to kill us? to kill terrorists? >> we can only identify 2% of the thousands of people we've killed, juan. every time we kill innocent people, we are creating new recruits for al-qaeda. people have told us that in pakistan, they've told us that in yemen. they said every time a drone strikes and kills an innocent person, ten, 20, 30 more people are going to join al-qaeda. now we see al-qaeda spreading not only in yemen, but in northern a
here is a preview. bruce willis takes john mclean overseas. he does not know his son is actually a cia operative looking to stop a just in time for the valentine's day nicholas sparks is coming to the big screen. a young woman starts a new life in a small towns. safe haven is pg-13. and beautiful creatures this boy falls in love with a newcomer. it is p g 13. still ahead gary and his lovely wife as they opened up the mail. also it has to be the biggest pay raise in the history of sports. lockout in 2011 when commissioner roger goodell voluntarily reduced his salary to $1? well what a publicity stunt that wastax returns show that goodell made $29.5 million that year! so he went from a buck to nearly $30 million in the same year - in 2010 he made $11.6 million - so he got an $18 million pay raise despite reducing his salary to $1 for a short period of time. the $29.5 million makes him the highest paid commissioner in sports - by $10 million!!!! by comparison nba commissioner david stern and mlb commissioner bud selig both took home about $20 million charles woodson the charles woodson er
said this will spill over to the confirmation of john brennan at cia. do you think this is really about benghazi? the holdup here? >> well, all of the questions were not asked or answered in the white house, they wrote a letter to senators answering questions just this week. months after benghazi. but, you know, i know that democrats want to blame republicans for chuck hagel bumbling and stumbling across the finish line. i happen to agree with columnists like dana millbank that the president should have a cabinet that reflects his world views. i agree with that. so if like chuck hagel you believe at that ayatollah and ahmadinejad were credibly elected and you missed the 2009 election riots, well, then hagel's your guy. if you believe there's an international jewish lobby that is intimidating congressmen and is controlling the u.s. state department, hagel's your guy. and interestingly, everybody thinks he's going to get confirmed which would just prove that his last conspiracy is false. he was wrong once again. i think these are perfectly legitimate questions to be raising about the next
on hold the nomination of john brennan to serve as director of the c.i.a. that's also why i voted to not end debate on the hagel nomination. i do not believe senator hagel has adequately explained his activities in their financing since he left the senate. what is he referring to specifically there? >> chuck hagel, former republican senator from nebraska, doesn't and didn't want to tell his former colleagues in the senate everything about where he got paid to speak pro-arab groups that he talked to that compound and complicate previous statements that he had made about the so-called jewish lobby, referring to the united states as connection to israel. for rand paul, this is extra tricky. this sounds a little confusing, but imagine this, the foreign policy of libertarian minded conservative republicans like rand paul has more in common with chuck hagel than it does with john mccain. they are opposed to intervention. they're in favor of cutting defense budgets as part of an overrecall reduction in government spending. so libertarians like the idea of chuck hagel, who wants to be par
